I bought this old watch at a market yesterday and have been doing some digging and it seems to be a very old rolex with the makers mark of W&D. The makers mark is in a oval with a point at the top and a point at the bottom.

Please look at the image below and mine says pretty much the same thing the only differences are the following.

Instead of the n in the photo that i think is a date mark mine is a h.
The numbers under the h (on mine) are different and read 542 with a 2 under it.

The inside of the watch workings has "swiss made" and the only other markings i can see are like below with a arrow pointing down between the a-r and the f-s.

From the digging about i have been doing it seems the makers mark of W&D seems to be Wilsdorf and Davis and it was Wilsdorf that created rolex in 1908.

Could anyone please take a look and maybe tell me more about it.

Thank you. Daniel.
